What I like for locs


Looking for a good shampoo for your locs? Loc’d Life field tested four products, and they’re our picks for a good shampoo.

  1. Crème of Nature Kiwi and Citrus Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo. This fast lathering  product does what it says when it comes to clean. Locs will be left soft and clean. The price point is great, too at around $5.99  for the large size.
  2. Organic Root Stimulator’s Creamy Aloe Shampoo. This beauty supply staple also does a good job of cleansing locs. The creamy and bubbly formula gets to the root of each loc and beyond.
  3. Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soap in Peppermint. This is a tingling shampoo, and there are other varieties, such as orange and citrus, rose, and others. This oil -based soap lathers quickly and efficiently. A little goes a long way.
  4. Chatto’s Uni-Locs Residue-Free Shampoo This is also a quick lathering shampoo that works fast in getting your locs clean. Available at www.chatto.com

When shopping around for shampoos, watch that it doesn’t detangle, isn’t overly creamy, or doesn’t leave any residue behind. Occasionally, you can use a clarifying shampoo or an apple cider rinse to remove buildup. Just remember that you have to replenish the moisture loss afterwards.
